Configuring the Genesys Agent

Genesys Voice Platform unifies web and VoIP telephony networks to enable new and powerful voice self-service applications. XO Platform’s Genesys Agent integration allows you to seamlessly hand off the virtual assistant conversations to your live agents on Genesys. 

This post provides the configuration steps for enabling the Genesys Agent integration. Use the configurations provided below as general guidelines, as there could be some differences based on the version of the Intercom that you are using. 

Overview’s Virtual Assistant (VA) serves as the central point of interaction for the users. In addition to its regular capabilities, the VA acts as a proxy or intermediary between the users and the Genesys agents to hand over conversations seamlessly. The VA also allows you to integrate with the Intercom platform. The VA facilitates communication and interaction between the user and the Genesys agent using the chat module. 


To configure the Intercom agent, follow the instructions in the sections below.

Step 1: Retrieve your Organization ID

  1. To retrieve your organization ID, please follow the steps mentioned at
  2. Copy this ID under the Organization ID field and keep it for future use.

Step 2: Create a Deployment ID

  1. To create a Deployment ID, log in to Genesys Pure Cloud and navigate to Admin > Contact Center > Widgets.
  2. Under widgets, Click Create Widget with Widget Type selected as Third Party.
  3. Copy this ID under the Deployment ID field and keep it for future use.

Step 3: Create a Queue

  1. Log in to Genesys Pure Cloud and go to Admin > Contact Center > Queues and Create a queue.
  2. Copy this name under the Queue Name field and keep it for future use.

Step 4: Enable the Genesys Agent

  1. Log in to the XO Platform:
  2. Select a Virtual Assistant for which you want to configure the Genesys agent. 
  3. Navigate to Build > Integrations > Agent Transfer and click the Genesys button.
  4. Click the Configurations tab and enter the following credentials for the Genesys Agent:
    • Organization_Id: The organization ID hosted on Genesys. (The same ID that you copied in Step 1.)
    • Deployment_Id: The deployment ID of your Genesys account. (The same ID that you copied in Step 2.)
    • Queue Name: The unique queue name. (The name of the queue that you created in Step 3.)

  5. If you want to make Genesys the default agent, enable the Default Agent System for all bot channels option.

    Note: This option is available only when you have multiple agents configured for your VA.  
  6. You can customize the channel mapping by clicking the Manage link.
  7. Once you click Manage, you can map the channels for which you want to use the Genesys agent to hand over the conversations. To learn more about channel enablement, see Adding channels to your bot.
  8. After mapping channels, click Done.
  9. Click Save to enable the Genesys agent.
  10. Publish the VA. For more information, see Publishing Bot.


This section helps you verify how the conversations from the XO Platform are handed over to the Genesys agent after enabling it. 

To verify the data exchange between’s VA and Genesys agent, follow these steps:

  1. Open a virtual assistant for which you have enabled the Genesys agent.
  2. Create a new Agent Transfer Node task. For example, create a PlatformAgent task with the AgentTransfer node and configure it to use the Genesys agent. For more information, read the Agent Transfer Node article.
  3. Click the Talk to Bot icon to launch the VA and enter Help.
  4. When a user initiates the chat from the VA, it transfers the conversation to the Genesys agent and sends a message to the user.
  5. Agent receives a notification about this on Genesys.
  6. Now, the connection between the Genesys agent and the user has been established, and the conversation continues.
